Healthy leader of a sick people

Health care is falling apart. The head of state tells jokes. Everything goes its own way. The highest events dedicated to the urgent resolution of crisis phenomena in our medicine consisted of two parts. First, from the “meeting of Vladimir Putin with representatives of the public”, and immediately after it, from the “expanded meeting of the Presidium of the State Council”, chaired by the president. I note that both of these actions did not have to be similar to traditional ritual events, such as the annual big press conference of the head of state, a “direct line” with him, or a message with which he speaks to the establishment. After all, this time the occasion is purely business. Even scandalous. Ordinary people are openly dissatisfied with state medicine and especially with bureaucratic innovations in it. And physicians have lately been protesting louder against the aforementioned innovations, and against the rampant Continue Reading

To the therapist – in two weeks: how medicine does NOT work in Crimea

As in all Russian regions, the state of medical care on the peninsula is deplorable Crimean journalist Viktor Yaduha shared his observations on the situation in the field of Crimean healthcare. We will say right away that the information will be useful for everyone who is going to go to Crimea on vacation, because the state of health and the availability of doctors can play a cruel joke with any tourist (if you cannot be treated at the expense of Russian medical insurance policies). Or – it will require additional costs for private medicine. So… “I go to doctors in Sevastopol. The nearest appointment with the therapist in the 4th clinic is in two weeks. Not to a specialist, but to the most ordinary therapist. Clinic at the 1st city hospital, evening, eight people in the corridor are waiting for a neurosurgeon. A nurse comes out of the office and Continue Reading

Boris Vishnevsky: "Optimizers do not experiment on themselves"

“It turns out that in many regions the“ optimization ”of healthcare institutions was unsuccessful – this recognition came from the“ social ”Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova. Actually, optimization – in translation – is an improvement in work. But what we are observing is not an improvement at all, "the deputy of the Legislative Assembly of St. Petersburg writes on Facebook. "This is another attempt by the government to shift to citizens the burden of regular expenses that were originally paid by their taxes. And to force citizens to pay twice for the same thing. In addition, by reducing the number of clinics and hospitals, supposedly in order to" increase efficiency ". For eight years in the St. Petersburg parliament I have been working not only in the commission on urban economy and urban planning, but also in the commission on health and social policy. And all these eight years there Continue Reading

The Russian government will increase spending on medicine

The future of healthcare in the Russian regions was discussed with the president. An expanded meeting of the Presidium of the State Council, chaired by Vladimir Putin, took place in Svetlogorsk, Kaliningrad Region. The head of state noted that since 2014, the average life expectancy in Russia has increased by more than 2.5 years – up to 73 and a half years. This is one of the main indicators of changes in the healthcare system. At the same time, the population still has a lot of questions about the work of primary care. In the next three years, additional funds will be allocated to finance clinics, district hospitals and rural outpatient clinics. Vladimir Putin – President of the Russian Federation: “150 billion rubles have been allocated for financing funds for the modernization of primary care for three years, starting in 2020. Additional funds at 50 billion per year. I will Continue Reading

The Medvedev government has recognized a complete failure in medicine

Reform of health care has led to such results that it is already impossible to hide anything. Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov He called the Russian healthcare system incapable of self-renewal and independent maintenance of the necessary level of its activity. Since in 10 years medicine in the country did not achieve proper results, then, probably, the system was not so debugged, he noted. The problem, he said, is not only material security. For doctors to use modern equipment that they have purchased, they still need to be prepared. The difficulty is that the doctors do not want to go to work in the countryside or in remote regions. At the same time, Peskov noted that until 2008, according to the results of the national project, a breakthrough was made in medicine, the initial link. Earlier, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Tatyana Golikova, who oversees Continue Reading

Russian health care is now called "health care"

By 2004, the number of clinics in Russia reached its maximum in history – there were about 22.1 thousand. But then a sharp decline began to 15.3 thousand in 2009, and then increased slightly. What happened in these years, which today are even called "fat" in comparison with the current? “The criminal code contains such wording about certain types of criminal acts committed“ with special cynicism, ”writes burckina-faso in his LiveJournal. Usually, this wording entails a significant tightening of the sentence. Especially if it is committed by a group of persons and by prior a conspiracy, that is, a plan. All of this fits perfectly with the current situation around Russian healthcare, which Putin himself recently described as a failure. That is, the result of what was called Ross’s healthcare optimization ii "there was a significant deterioration in the quality of medical services of the population, a decrease in physical Continue Reading

Question of the day: why do not Skvortsova, Siluanov and Golikova resign?

A rare case of self-criticism today has been demonstrated the day before. "Health optimization has been unsuccessful in many regions."– said Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Tatyana Golikova in an interview with the program "Moscow. Kremlin. Putin" on the channel "Russia 1". Wow! The Deputy Prime Minister dared to talk about MANY (highlighted by us – ed.) Regions that became victims of thoughtless reforms. And she didn’t even soften the social diagnosis: not just “not good enough” or “not quite successful”, but “unsuccessful”, that is, failing, stupidly, dangerous to the health and life of millions of people who, on their own, excuse me, feel the results optimization. If the query "optimization of medicine" is put in any search engine, then reading articles, posts, blogs will not be for the faint of heart. Rather, for lovers of BDSM … Over the past three years, and "New News" published hundreds of materials Continue Reading

"Many people think that if you beat doctors with sticks, they work better."

On October 31, the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation officially recognized the reduction in the number of doctors in many regions of Russia, and President Vladimir Putin on the same day proposed the creation of medical "special teams" from volunteers and students of medical schools, similar to student construction teams. All this happens against the background of strikes and layoffs of doctors in many regions of Russia due to "optimization" (in fact, reduction of hospitals and clinics), underfunding of ambulances and complaints of doctors about salaries. Semyon Halperin, president of the Doctor’s Defense League, in an interview with Present Times, called the current situation in Russian healthcare “complete collapse” and believes that officials who “stole budget money, optimized, closed hospitals, and carried out massive reductions” are responsible for it. None of them, Halperin emphasizes, was punished for his actions. – What does the reduction in the number of Continue Reading

Healthy leader of a sick people

Putin responds to people's discontent with state medicine and the apparent increase in tension within this system in the “straight line” genre with himself.

Deserve patriotism

False patriotism makes it difficult to treat cancer. Russian, authorities believe, should be treated only with Russian medicines, and not foreign ones. The whole problem is that Rostec lobbied for such laws, but he did not learn how to produce the necessary medicines. It is impossible to treat with imported ones. Rather, it is possible if they are produced in India, and repackaged in Russia. In this case, it is forbidden to import Western ones, support of a domestic producer, that is, a repacker. The main thing is that we have all kinds of state corporations, but not children with cancer. Such priorities are not future generations, but colleagues from the GDR. They themselves are treating cancer abroad, don’t believe it – ask Governor Vorobyov, don’t ask Kobzon anymore, but children are being treated in Russia because they don’t have parents of governors and deputies. If so, then they did Continue Reading
